in the ukraine. last year the country's increasingly auto cratic president viktor yanukovych refused to sign a trade agreement with the european union after coming under strong pressure from russian leader vladimir putin. his refusal to sign a trade deal coupled with the government's attacks on civil liberties and growing fears of moscow's efforts to turn ukraine into a puppet state sparked massive street protests in the capital city of kiev. when the government responded with violence, the situation rapidly spiraled out of control until eventually president yanukovych was expelled from office and forced to flee. it's been almost a decade since ukraine's orange revolution captured the attention and spirits of freedom lovers across the world. now the country is once again at a crossroads. the decisions that are made in the days and weeks that lie ahead will determine whether ukraine is allowed to flourish as a prowestern democracy or whether it is forced to languish in corruption and authoritarianism as a russian satellite. it is time for the president of the united states, the commander in c
